GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Dan Brouthers/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

  • Looks good and well-written. A couple of the references (hickoksports, tripod.com, geocities.com - I'm not familiar with thebaseballpage.com) look like less-than-reliable personal web pages but none of the info from them seems controversial. A more exhaustive search through Google Book Search could probably glean the same information. —Wknight94 (talk) 11:47, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you reviewing the article, I will check out the information I pulled from these websites and see if it essential article information. At least with Hickok, I've used quite a bit for other articles.Neonblak (talk) 04:19, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
Ok, I've removed the information and references for Hickok and Tripod, but I have not been able to find the same information used from that geocities website. It appears to be well done with good research, and I hesitate to remove the information, as it gives good context of his career in relations to the other sluggers of his era.Neonblak (talk) 04:35, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
I've also removed thebaseballpage.com info for the reasons you stated, but I am unable to find the same information that geocities.com page illustrates. Your call on that, but seems pretty reliable, but also scarce.Neonblak (talk) 23:34, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
